DETROIT — Slowly, the procession made its way around the church. Incense billowing in front of a chalice containing the Blessed Sacrament, the faithful prayed in watchful adoration as the Lord prepared for his Passion.

Catholics across the Archdiocese of Detroit celebrated Holy Thursday, the start of the Sacred Triduum, with the Mass of the Lord’s Supper, a commemoration of Jesus’ last meal with his disciples, the institution of the sacred priesthood, and the first Mass in the Church’s history.

At St. Augustine and St. Monica Parish in Detroit, Fr. David Preuss, OFM Cap., washed the feet of 12 parishioners in memory of Jesus’ own service to his apostles.
